Red Carpet Fashion Awards

When I first saw Toni Collette hit the red carpet wearing this Rafael Cennamo Spring 2010 gown at the 2010 SAG Awards, I wasn’t blown away.

I did love the gold and blush empire beaded bodice cascade gown, but I still don’t think it was quite right for the SAGs.

Last night at the 2010 Premio Lo Nuestro a La Musica Latina Awards, singer Paulina Rubio wore the same gown.

What I find very strange is that Toni appears taller and more statuesque, whereas Paulina looks short in the same gown which does appear to be modified.

For this reason I think Toni carries the look better, so she wins for me.

REDEMPTION.

This (said like Ryan Seacrest) is doing a 180.

Beyonce Knowles went from tragic to magic in the space of 24 hours and I’m thankful to both her and her stylist.

At her “Heat” fragrance launch in Macy’s Herald Square in New York last night, Bey looked stunning wearing a navy Rafael Cennamo dress which was accented with patent leather straps and a leather belt.

I love everything about this look from the colour, to the exaggerated detail on the hips to those red hot Gianmarco Lorenzi heels which render me speechless.

I just wish she would do something with her hair. That two tone badger look is so very over and it was never a cute look to begin with.

*sings* “What a difference a day makes…24 little hours…”

BDOTW worthy for sure.

Most Disappointing Award
When I saw this Rafael Cennamo strapless gold and blush gown on Toni Collette the first person to come to mind was Nicole Richie.

Nicole would go ape for this maxi look, but I think Toni is better than this. Especially considering how much of a knock out she was at the Globes in Elie Saab.

This is was a huge step back for me.

The gown itself is nice, especially the beaded bodice with turquoise touches which Toni complemented her matching earrings, but I didn’t like the tiered skirt.

Her look was complete with a gold crystal and leather Daniel Swarovski Lana clutch.

As hard as I tried, I just couldn’t love Kristen Stewart in this stunning Oscar de la Renta Resort 2010 tulle gown.

If she wanted to be the Bella of this ball she shouldn’t scowled her way down the red carpet, and she should’ve done more with her hair.

For me this is a waste of a stunning gown.

As much as it was Kristen’s night, Dakota Fanning stole her red carpet thunder.

The teen actress wore a cute Valentino Spring 2010 lace dress paired with a maroon satin pair of platform heels.

I would’ve loved it if she had kept the cute bow, but I guess she was going for a more grown up look.

Definitely a BDOTW contender…

…as is Ashley Greene .

She was a total knock-out wearing a Prabal Gurung Fall 2009 ravishing red gown.

The high-neck gown had an incredibly sexy draping detail at the back.

Half-up-half-down hairstyles usually bother me, but Ashley has so much good going on I can not fault her.

Noot Seear surprised me being the 3rd celebrity to wear a piece from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 collection.

I’ll admit I didn’t know who she was, but the Canadian actress sure does justice to this reptile print dress.

Instead of the Armadillo heels she opted for a sexy pair of strappy platform heels.

Anna Kendrick sparkled on the red carpet wearing a Talbot Runhof Fall 2009 black asymmetrical one sleeve sequin-mini dress.

This dress sure does put you in the festive spirit with the red and white studs which add a bit of colour to this cute/sexy mini.

She completed her look with Stella McCartney heels.

I’m very grateful to Christian Serratos for modifying this Rafael Cennamo Fall 2009 gown into a cute and sassy mini dress.

I just wish her gold and silver pailette covered mini dress was worn with better shoes.

Those bronze ankle boots are like kryptonite to my eyes.

Author Stephenie Meyer glided down the red carpet wearing a custom-made Carolina Herrera gown with a mermaid hem.

The gown is loosely based black and grey embroidered sheath dress which was presented on the Fall 2009 runway.

I love how much more dramatic Stephenie’s gown is to the runway look.

A chic updo and Gothic beads complete this stunning look.

Julia Jones showed off her legs wearing a sexy coral BCBG Max Azria mini dress.

I just love this colour against her caramel skin.

What a beauty.

Julianne Hough’s look has a touch of de ja vu to it, as it reminds me of the Prabal Gurung look we saw on Becki Newton recently.

Nikki Reed opted for a stunning silk baby blue Burberry mini dress, paired with Christian Louboutin heels.

Earlier this summer Kim Kardashian was at the Monte Carlo Television Festival to promote her reality TV show “Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s”.

She wore a strapless Rafael Cennamo white flowing gown, with a charcoal feather bodice whilst getting ready for her elegant photo shoot at the L’Hermitage Hotel.

She was ready for her close-up sporting loose waves and a ravishing red pout.

Last night actress Alicia Witt wore the same gown when she walked the red carpet at the 2009 Primetime Emmy Awards.

The red head accessorized with forest green clutch, a large ring and a selection of bracelets.

I love the way Alicia soften the look so she wins for me.
